Fees

As of April 1st 2022 St Clair Medical will be a mixed billing clinic.


Unfortunately, governments current and previous have not increased the Medicare rebate to keep pace with the cost of living and running a medical practice. We at St Clair Medical believe in optimal healthcare and prefer to take the time to provide holistic care for our patients, especially those with complex health issues. This is why we charge a fee, with the hope that in the future Medicare will return a higher rebate to our patients so that accessing healthcare will have a lower out-of-pocket cost.

Consultation fees will depend on the length and complexity of the consult, phone consults will incur the same gap payment charge. Medical consumables associated with the treatment provided will attract a separate fee. All outstanding accounts are to be settled at the time of consultation. For all other appointment types please confirm pricing with reception staff.

You will need to present your Medicare card at each visit.
